The original Benfleet Baptist Church on Kents Hill Road. Mark Summers. Its appearance suggests that it has closed, but when an extension was added the main entrance was moved to face Constitution Hill, as seen here in a Streetview from 2023. TQ 7757 8702. Link.

Holy Family Church (R.C.) on High Road. TQ 7682 8833. Mark Summers. Link.

Methodist Church on London Road, successor to the Wesleyan Chapel, and dated here to 1931, where there is a photo of the building as it was first built. TQ 7783 8633. Mark Summers. Link.

Oasis Christian Centre on High Road and Grove Road. TQ 7769 8687. Mark Summers. Link.

St. Mary the Virgin. TQ 7782 8614. Brian Thompson. Link. Grade I listed. For related listed features, see here.

Older maps show a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on the south side of Essex Way at TQ 7795 8606. It pre-dated a map of 1897, and seems to have gone out of use in the mid-20th century. It hasn't survived - its site was seen by Streetview in 2023. A photo of it can be seen here, where it's dated to 1877.
